We desperately need small cell wireless facilities. Our access to Verizon wireless is terrible, very low signal strength and dropped calls. We live on Java Drive in San Ramon. Help Now!

"Carr stated, “They are dictating to us that they don’t care if there is a potential health risk "

Greg Carr there isn't a "potential health risk". Quit with the nonsense anti-vax pseudoscience. It seems like no amount of studies or evidence will ever convince you. It is bad enough here where I live here in Pleasanton where lack of coverage could cause real health risks when emergency services can't be reach because of lack of cell coverage during a medical emergency or accident. Those of us who need to travel to Danville and San Ramon to work are also affected.

" ...some of us don’t want to have it or question it ..."

Most of us do want it. Why are you holding up progress? Some of us have employers who require the use of a specific carrier and need coverage. Why does one small group take it upon themselves to speak for all of us? Why do you want to waste tax dollars with a lawsuit that most citizens don't want?
